The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – Comic Con Trailer

Peter Jackson’s bloated Hobbit trilogy wraps with the final chapter The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies which he gave fans a sneak peek at over the weekend at Comic-Con. Warner Bros. has now released the trailer first seen in Hall H at the convention, in which the heroes of Middle Earth must contend with the ferocious dragon Smaug and the fast-mobilizing forces of Sauron, the latter of which took center stage in The Lord Of The Rings. Here’s the new look at the December 17 release set to hit theaters in 3D, 2D, IMAX, and the awful High Frame Rate 3D.

LEGO: The Hobbit

LEGO The Hobbit sends players of all ages on an unforgettable interactive journey through the first two films in The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Players will follow Bilbo Baggins as he is recruited by the Wizard Gandalf to aid Thorin Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves. Bilbo leaves the comforts of the Shire on a journey through Middle-earth to help the Dwarves reclaim their lost Kingdom of Erebor within the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he is introduced to ravenous Trolls, dangerous Orcs and, of course, Gollum and his precious Ring.
Check out the new trailer released today to see more of the highly anticipated LEGO® The Hobbit™ videogame featuring all of your favourite characters from the first two films in The Hobbit Trilogy in LEGO form, including Bilbo, Gandalf, and the Dwarves of Erebor.
I’d rather watch this than The Hobbit again…
